In 2018, it is impossible to do away with influencers. Influencer marketing has become so popular that even video games are simulating it. The Sims 4 has just released an upgrade– called ‘Get Famous’, which allows users to play the role of influencers!
The Sims is a video game series, in which characters simulates the lives of real people. The fourth edition is staying true to modernity, by revealing its latest expansion pack, which focuses on social media influence.
Get Famous is a new update which will allow players become ‘influencers’, in the game. According to a press release, you can “bask in the limelight as an inspiring influencer, live streaming every lavish moment and giving other Sims maximum #FOMO.” Now that’s interesting!
Though there are other levels in this expansion pack, the one of interest is called “Claim to Fame”. With this feature, you get to choose to become an influencer, and you must complete some tasks to become famous– just as in real life! Other associated features include paparazzi, the red carpet, masses of fans and exclusive parties.
According to TheStar.com, “In ‘Claim Your Fame’, players are reminded that the more famous the Sim becomes, the more attention, perks and fans it will attract.
However, it could also mean that the Sim would have to spend more money, or in this case, Simoleons, to maintain its lifestyle”.
